Miss you dad.

Monday, November 26, 2012

 I'm finding myself missing my dad quite a bit over the past few days. Its almost been one year since he stepped into eternity and was reunited my sister Ronda, his dad & mom, sister and so many other friends and family members.

Shortly after he passed away someone told me that it helped them through their loss by always remembering their loved one in the context of heaven. I have to admit it has helped me more than I thought. I have actually found myself wondering about dad walking and talking with Jesus - spending time with his friends and family - enjoying his first Thanksgiving in heaven - and more.

I love this song by Matthew West, "Save a Place for Me." I'm thankful for the promise of heaven and the gift of salvation. And, until the day my Jesus calls me home - I will strive to know and love Him more each day...and enjoy thinking of my dad loving his new home in heaven.
